Sen. Warner advises Bush to start withdrawing troops

Sen. John Warner, R-Va., urged President Bush Thursday to announce in mid-September that he is beginning to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq. Warner, perhaps the most influential Republican senator on national security issues, said that withdrawing a small number of troops — perhaps as few as 5,000 — would send a "sharp, clear message" to Iraq, America and the world that the U.S. commitment in Iraq isn't open-ended.
